Terri Cooke wishes she could give Mick Wentworth a piece of her mind. The infuriating stud muffin walks into her coffee shop every morning expecting his regular order at 8:57 on the dot, without ever acknowledging Terri’s presence—except for staring at her cleavage. And yet she can’t deny that Mick Wentworth has an animal magnetism that’s stronger and richer than any espresso . . . which explains why Terri says yes when he suddenly, inexplicably asks her out.
After the morning coffee run, Mick’s day is all downhill from there. His family’s marketing firm is dysfunctional in more ways than one, so to save the business, Mick desperately needs to impress their newest client. When he learns that Terri’s a fan of their trendy product, he tries to get inside her head. It doesn’t hurt that she’s the barista he’s been lusting after for the past five months. But as things heat up with Terri, Mick finds that a little steam is just the jolt he needs to turn his whole life around.

What a cute standalone. Although, I think that there could have been sequel….Just sayin…
Terri has a lot on her plate. She gave up her marketing job and is working a few part time jobs, because her brother has a similar form of ALS and needs someone to care her him. Since she’s his caregiver, she didn’t exactly have a social life. But that hasn’t stopped her from noticing one specific man who gets coffee every morning in her coffee shop. In fact, she’s even noticing him at her other job too. Seems like he might be noticing her too.
Mick is the Stud. He’s the leading marketing exec for his family firm, drop dead gorgeous and wealthy. He’s also dealing with the worst family drama possible, and all while trying to save the family business. Thankfully, he’s landed a client that will help the business thrive again. Problem? A certain beautiful barista has wormed her way in to the clients head with marketing ploys that Mick knows nothing about. Guess he has a new marketing assistant.
This is a super cute and creative story. The “romance” is ass backwards, but it makes for a very entertaining story. There are twists and turns, and even some deep, but the way it’s written and brought together is seamless. If you’re a gamer, you’ll especially enjoy this book. Btw, loved the way the author had “real” sex AND “cyber” sex within one book. Like I stated earlier, there could have been a sequel, but it’s one hell if a standalone.
